I have a wonderful local,organic beef roast. I thought about throwing it in the crockpot with some carrots and potatoes but I'd like to try something new! What else can I do? I don't mind oven or crockpot but prefer to be able to slow cook it while I'm at work. Does anyone have some good ideas besides my "usual"?
THANKS!

When I cook a roast in the crockpot, I put in carrots and onions (and cabbage if I have it) and then sprinkle a packet of dry italian dressing mix on top. I almost always put some cut up garlic into the roast itself as well.

I cook it in a crockpot with beer. cook the snot out of it then shreed it and serve as shreeded beef sandwiches/on tortilias. I also save a chunk and chop it up and mix with cooked vegi and gravy and topped with mashed taters for beef pot pies.

Doing what I can to make better choices every day!

stuff it full of garlic cloves.... poke holes all over it, and put whole (or half depending on the size of them) garlic cloves in them and then cook it however you usually cook a roast (crockpot, in a pot, in the oven, etc)
